Loved it! Crab and avocado...the perfect pairing! Angela, this made a delightful luncheon salad. In the spirit of South America, I added a touch of chili powder, cumin and diced jalapeno, and I used the first lime picked from my new drawf lime tree! I couldn't get tomatoes because of the recall, so I served the salad on the halved avocado, which was really pretty. Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.

  2. In a bowl, combine crabmeat, mayo, juice of 1/2 lemon, onion, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt & pepper. Mix lightly.
  3. Cut each avocado in half, peel and remove the pit. Cut each half into 6 to 8 wedges, squeezing remaining 1/2 lemon over slices to prevent discoloration.
